Max Cancels Critically Acclaimed Julia Series After Two Seasons, Leaving Fans Hungry for More

LOS ANGELES – The streaming service Max has decided to cancel the biopic series “Julia,” which drew inspiration from the life of renowned chef and author Julia Child. Starring Sarah Lancashire, the show showcased Child’s groundbreaking influence on American cuisine through her popular cooking shows. Despite receiving critical acclaim and a 96% approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, Max has chosen not to move forward with a third season.

The cancellation news follows the conclusion of the show’s second season on December 21, which will now serve as the series finale. The final episode, penned by Daniel Goldfarb, who co-created and executive-produced the show with Chris Keyser as its showrunner, marked the end of the two-season run.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Max expressed gratitude to the cast and creative team, highlighting their exceptional work in bringing “Julia” to life. The statement praised the series for its heartfelt, sensual, and inspiring portrayal of Julia Child, ensuring that her incredible legacy would be forever celebrated.

“Julia” joins a growing list of titles that Max has recently cancelled. Earlier this week, the network also axed the David Jenkins pirate comedy series “Our Flag Means Death.” Additionally, the Bruce Lee-inspired crime drama “Warrior” met the same fate after three seasons, although there are rumors that it may find a new home on Netflix.

Overall, the cancellation of “Julia” comes as a disappointment for fans who enjoyed Lancashire’s portrayal of the iconic chef. Max’s decision marks the end of a two-season journey that offered viewers a captivating glimpse into Julia Child’s impact on American cuisine.
